I have been sanding my wooden floor with the intent of revarnishing.
However, before I did this I moved a few 1kitchen counters and such around. So now the areas which had counters on top for the last few years are a lighter colour than the areas that were exposed. (The same varnish was used, just the lighter areas have been covered for about 6 years, the entire life of the floor) In one case the floor area hadn't even been varnished beforehand. Even after sanding, the difference is very noticeable
Is there any (hopefully easy) way of equalising or even blending together the contrasting areas so the difference isn't as noticeable?
